Just a few ideas for you if you're struggling to get back into a routine after Easter…
Below is a downloadable, suggested timetable of activities that you could do with your children at this very unusual time. Please don’t feel that you have to do all of it by any means, but some may prefer a routine and more structure to the day.
We have included some new activities that don’t involve computers (although you might need to read the activity or idea on here first.)
Remember spending precious time with your family and making special memories doing fun activities is equally important.
The daily activities for Phonics, Maths and English/Topic are still in our week stars for you to use, but since we wrote those, Letters & Sounds Phonics, White Rose Maths and BBC Bitesize heave brought out other super materials that are more like the work we do when we are in school. You can choose which you prefer, you don’t have to do it all!!
** Suggested Timetable-Week beginning 1st June**
Need a brain break? Click on the picture below, click the play button to listen and find a comfortable space.
Teaching children to focus on and control their breathing can help them become less reactive and more reflective when feeling anxious or stressed. Try to take a Brain Break together 3 times a day.
